While students and staff have been working at Marshalltown High School this year, construction workers have also been getting the job done on the Roundhouse Phase II project.

It was time to bridge that gap on December 18 as MHS juniors and seniors in Shelly Chandler’s composition classes delivered holiday cheer to the workers in the form of baked treats, breakfast pizza and water. It was Mrs. Chandler’s idea and was well received by the workers.

“We just wanted to let them know how much we appreciate what they are doing for us,” Chandler said.

Construction is nearing completion on the Roundhouse Phase II project which includes an auxiliary gym and wrestling room at MHS. The project is led by the general contractor Ball Team.
